Savarona was a Fitting Yacht for Mustafa Kemal Ataturk
A remarkable yacht is lying in Gocek, Turkey, this week. When it was built in 1931, no yacht was larger (it’s 408 feet long!). The Turkish government owned her in the late ’30s and, for a brief time before he died, the founder of the Turkish republic, Mustafa Kemal Attaturk had the use of her.
Eastern Mediterranean YachtWorld.com representative Jonathan Bowker had the chance to tour her, and since most of us couldn’t be there with him, we thought it would be fun to share a look at a few of the photos that Jonathan secured. You can see more of them in the story he wrote about her and also read about the royalty and Hollywood stars who have been aboard her.
